Explore the World in 3D

Procedural GL JS is a JavaScript library for creating 3D WebGL maps. Using the library it is easy to make 3D maps for the web, which load very quickly and which are optimized for mobile devices.

If you want to explore the capabilities of Procedural GL JS then you should have a look at the demo map. The demo map is a fun way to explore the world in 3D and explore how different locations look when mapped in Procedural GL JS.

Procedural GL JS can be used with raster map tiles from any source. The 3D mapping library also supports map overlays, which means it easy to add markers, lines or polygon shapes (specified in GeoJSON) to your maps. You can get a good idea of the types of features supported by the overlay function using the Overlay Editor.

To learn more about the options available in Procedural GL JS you can also refer to the library's documentation.  

Procedural GL JS is built upon three.js. It is one of a number of WebGL mapping libraries built upon three.js. These libraries include:

  • - HERE's open source 3D web mapping library
  • three-geo - a JavaScript library to create small 3D terrain models
  • Gio.js - a JavaScript library for building 3D globes
